Tangerine is the new power fruit to beat obesity and heart disease
About the author:

The tangerine could be the great new wonder fruit

The tangerine could be the great new wonder fruit. It fights obesity and protects against type 2 diabetes, which can lead to heart disease and stroke.
Nobiletin, a flavonoid, appears to be the active ingredient in tangerines that provides the healthy benefits, researchers from the University of Western Ontario have discovered.
In a series of experiments on mice, the researchers discovered that nobiletin counter-acted the bad effects of the high fat, high sugar Western diet. The mice's cholesterol, insulin and glucose levels remained the same and they didn't develop a fatty liver. As a result, they didn't put on weight.
Nobiletin seems to be ten times more effective than naringenin, which is found in grapefruit, the researchers estimate.
